How do you make a character say something, meanwhile other characters are doing other animations?

Can someone please help, I want a character to say something but at the same time I want other characters doing another animation MEANWHILE the character is saying sonething?

What about when I have two characters doing the animation at the same time how would I write that? While the other is talking?

I feel like I did that before & didn’t work the first time… huh :confused: but one last quistion i’m really struggling with this scene where the pause is too long & Instead of a pause I want it to zoom slowly giving it enough time for the “shush” animation to finish once the zoom goes onto them… how would I do that?
